Highlights

MARRAKECH – Often referred to as the ‘Red City’, Marrakech is long famed for its bustling activity of shopkeepers and souqs. The city enjoys a great climate and varied setting, from palm groves and rose gardens to the nearby Atlas Mountains. Be sure to visit Jemaa el Fna Square, a social and cultural medina. It’s considered a rendezvous point for berber merchants, travellers and peddlers, fortune tellers, story tellers, snake charmers, musicians and dancers.

CASABLANCA – This bustling metropolis is considered Morocco’s business capital and is a city on the move. Home to the impressive Hassan II Mosque, it’s one of the largest mosques in the world. Uniquely designed, part of the mosque’s floor is made of glass so worshippers can kneel directly over the sea. Non- Muslim visitors may enter the mosque on guided tours which take place several times a day.

FEZ – Although demoted from the position of Morocco’s capital city, the Medina of Fez is considered the most complete medieval city still in existence. Teeming with alleyways it’s a magical place to allow yourself to get lost in. A visit to the souqs will lead you to one of many tanneries, where one of the oldest arts in Morocco (and the world) is practiced. It’s a great place to buy premium soft leather products.

CHEFCHAOUEN – Worth a visit is to the unique and very blue medina of Chefchaouen. Houses are simple and are brightly coloured blue, making for very vivid photos.

CUISINE – A must try in Morocco is a traditional tajine dish. It’s a classic dish prepared in an earthenware pot that combines meat, fruit and spices and will get your mouth watering every time!
